Comments about Portfolio Series Watersoluble Oil Pastels:
I was initially very excited about finding pointed oil pastels but the quality is lower than Crayola which is what I previously used. The creaminess is nice but they crumble easily and some of the colors aren't as rich as I had hoped. I had to bring out my old boxes of crayola and some pentels to get more colors. My students are using them on black paper and the yellow looks horrible against the black. They feel oiler than most oil pastels.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Why use anything else?
By Lady of the Lake

These watersoluable pastels are a watercolor and pastel in one. The colors are vibrant, the pastels go on very smooth and they don't loose color quality when blended with water. Perfect for the I-am-not-creative crowd as they are so easy to use and offer effects that look like you know what you are doing.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
water soluable oil pastels

I like the creaminess of color but am disappointed in adding water as not a soluable as desired.

Creamy, Delicous and Versatile!
I love how versatile these oil pastels are. Use them as oil pastels or watercolor crayons! Two for the price of one!
Great quality and a crowd pleaser
By Nicky the Artist

Portfolio Series oil pastels are the creamiest and most vibrant oil pastels out there. I'm an artist and an art therapist and I love to use the pastels for my personal projects and for group art directives. The clients love these pastels as much as I do!

Super buy for the price
I have used oil pastels for years and own just bout every oil pastel there is. I found this brand one of the best. Others don't match it, especially price-wise.

Love these pastels!
By WNY Art Teacher
from Buffalo, NY
I ordered these for my students (K-5), and they are fabulous. A great value, easy clean-up (just keep an eye on the floor...don't step on them because if you don't realize they're there, you'll have a great big mess on your hands!) For the most part, these blend pretty well for my little kiddos. However, I will say that I wish the violet was not only more vibrant, but also more easily spreadable and blendable.
Excellent customer service!
These oil pastels are especially nice. I look forward to using them on many pieces of art. But best of all; I never have a worry about anything I order from Dick Blick. They always have exemplary customer service.
